Event Assistant Apprenticeship

An Event Assistant is an entry level position, typically working within a team of people in an events company or within the events department of a larger organisation. The role would  usually provide support to a number of Event Planners or Project Managers by carrying out a diverse range of tasks necessary to plan, organise and deliver an event: for  example, searching for the right location and venue for the event; working with the design team on the look and feel of the event; or organising logistics like transportation and  atering. The events organised may be for the company where the Event Assistant is working, or could be for a variety of different clients including large corporations, smaller
companies and not- for-profit organisations.

Events cover a broad range of activities as well as sizes, from small numbers of attendees through to thousands.  Around 75% of events are conferences, meetings, trade shows and exhibitions. Other events include outdoor events, cultural events, sporting and music events.  Companies use events to bring together different groups of people: from employees attending a sales conference; to customers or suppliers attending the launch of a new product; to shareholders gathering at a conference designed to attract new investors. These are just a few examples – the breadth and diversity of the events industry is partly what makes it such an exciting place to work.

Anyone, from any background, can have a successful career in event management if they have the right attitude, passion, stamina and commitment to learning. Previous experience is not typically needed.  It is a demanding yet very rewarding environment to work in.   Flexible, calm and proactive individuals with energy, enthusiasm, good communication skills, patience and an ability to empathise are ideal candidates for the events profession.
